On the Royal Family website, there have been some changes. As the official time of mourning for the dead King or Queen ends, small changes are happening. When the Queen was still alive, the couple was always in the middle of the list on the page that showed the rankings. As you might expect, they were lower on the list than important royals like the Prince and Princess of Wales, but they were higher than the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, the Duke of Kent, and Prince Michael and Princess Michael of Kent.
Now, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been moved to the bottom of the website, below the rest of the Royal Family and next to Prince Andrew, who has been in trouble in the past. Prince Andrew is at the very bottom of the page, and Prince Harry is above his wife. According to reports, the website has been changed to show the order of succession after Queen Elizabeth’s death. In the Telegraph, Celia Walden wonders if the change might reflect the King’s vision of a smaller monarchy that gives more power to those who help him do his job.
When asked about the difference after the Queen died, a spokesman for the King told the Telegraph, “We will work on updating the website as we get more information.” Prince Harry and Meghan are still waiting to hear from King Charles III about whether or not their children will get titles. This is making things tenser. People think that the fact that it hasn’t been said on the Royal Family website is the only sign that the Sussex children won’t be able to use their titles.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex said they would stop being essential members of the Royal Family in 2020. Before they chose to stop working as royals, they were below the Prince and Princess of Wales, who is now the Prince and Princess of Wales. First, they were put in the middle of the website, below Wessex and Princess Anne.
The news that Meghan’s podcast, Archetypes, will be back on Spotify next Tuesday after a four-week break because of the death of the Queen prompted the move. The comedian Margaret Cho will talk about Asian American stereotypes in the entertainment business in the episode. The Duchess of Sussex said it was a podcast where “we dissect, explore, and subvert the labels that try to hold women back.”
